Delivering supplies

Lots of volunteers will be getting shopping and delivering other supplies to people who need them.

Follow these steps to make deliveries as safe as possible for both yourself, and the person you are helping:

  • Leave the delivery on their doorstep, step back and call them on the phone to tell them it's there.
  • Check they have received the delivery before leaving.
  • Avoid touching doors.
  • Do not travel on public transport.
  • Wash your hands before and after delivery (keep a bottle of alcohol hand sanitiser on you if you have one).

Where possible, remind the person you are helping to:

  • remove any outer packaging and put straight in bin
  • wash surfaces where packaging has been placed
  • wash their hands before and after delivery
  • thoroughly wash all fruit and vegetables before cooking
  • follow the normal, safe cooking processes
